Recognising the achievements of young people in Worcestershire, we were delighted to support Kaitlin, Joshua and Charlie, winners of the Good Friends and Carers awards at the Tryangle Awards 2019 this week.
Charlotte Thornton-Smith, head of our Worcester office, presented the awards which acknowledge the commitment and care for others which these three have displayed.
Both Kaitlin and Joshua care for one of their parents – Kaitlin for her father and Joshua for his mother, and both have overcome difficulties to present school assemblies and increase their voluntary work, helping others to deal with the challenges they face. Charlie has become a champion for looked-after children and care leavers in the county and is not only determined to reach university in spite of his learning difficulties but also to support others to enable their voice to be heard.
Charlotte said:” I find the Tryangle Awards inspirational; they recognise young people who give so much both to their own families and to the community around them. It is always a pleasure to meet the winners and to hear their stories and I am so glad that we can continue to sponsor the awards as we have done for several years now.”
